  2. The Onion pakodas look really enticing. Now that the monsoon is here, the evenings (especially those of the weekends) call for such hot and spicy pakodas.. What could be better than just sitting by the balcony and enjoying the rains sipping hot tea and onion pakodas. Thank you so much for the recipe 🙂

  3. Instead of the instant mix, I combine 2 parts besan flour with 1 part rice flour and a pinch of soda. This mixture also gives very nice and crisp pakodas. I combine the onion, curry leaves, ginger, ajwain, green chillies and salt. To this I add 1 tbsp hot oil and then use the combined flours with soda and make it the same way.

  4. I usually do this in my home. Please visit my blog and I update this in it. I am a new blogger , please view and Post comment.
